Review: Sation Diamond Diggin' Diva over a Nude Black French Tip

Well, editing this post is something of a challenge as I'm typing this on my ipad in New York! I'm here for ten days on holiday with my bf and we're having a great time. I managed to find the time to do my nails before we left so let's take a look at a mani I did, inspired by the always amazing  psshiiit.

To start, I applied a thick base coat, like usual and let it dry completely. Then, using binder reinforcement stickers (you know, the ones that look like donuts) I added the black French tips. I know people go on a lot about the stickers but they really are the right size to fit a French tip. Then, once the French tip was dry I added a glitter gradient in Sation Diamond Diggin' Diva. I found that if I wiped most of the polish off the brush first I could get just the sprinkling of glitter I wanted on the tips. This is the first time I've tried Safion and it's making a good impression with its silver and black glitter combo.







The Verdict: I'm not 100% sure I'm convinced about French tips on nude nails, especially when mine a a little abused from all the polish I apply.  That being said, I do like the glitter blending in a traditional French tip, so I thanks pshiiiit for the idea :)

  2. I love this! I just found this Sation glitter - I can't wait to try it like this! I may go with a colored tip, though... thinking teal.

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop .  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
